Rehabilitative Services

No matter how your healthcare journey begins—accident or sports-related injuries, surgery, disease or age-related conditions—chances are good you will spend some time in rehabilitation on your road to recovery.

Hospital-based rehabilitation offers depth and breadth of services not typically found in competing options. Grove City Medical Center’s highly-trained therapists and support staff continually work to advance their skills and expertise to provide specialized treatment, along with traditional therapies to patients.

Excellent examples of specialized care include the Schroth Method of non-surgical, interventional treatment for adolescents with scoliosis—Grove City Medical Center boasts two certified Schroth therapists, and its program is one of very few in the area, with the next closest in Pittsburgh.

If you experience problems related to balance or vertigo, you may benefit from a consultation and evaluation with GCMC’s vestibular therapist to help with these life-altering issues.

Lymphedema, a condition that sometimes follows cancer treatment, is painful and debilitating. GCMC’s certified lymphedema therapist is skilled in a special type of massage that is effective in managing the condition and providing relief for patients who suffer from it.
